Whew, I have been busy as Co-Regional Advisor for the San Francisco North and East Bay Region, and I love it! My partner and great friend, Shells, and I just threw our first big conference. 270 people attended with 14 faculty, from editors to agents to “book doctors.” I’m happy to say that all the intense planning resulted in success. 97.8 percent of attendees said we met our goal of offering valuable advanced craft with a 5 out of 5 rating. Now that Oktoberfest 2019 has wrapped up, we are planning the Spring Intensive, with a fantastic presenter surprise I can’t quite share yet. When I’m not in SCBWI mode, I’m tutoring adults and children in my two areas of expertise: creative writing and public speaking. You can find out more on my Services page or at the tutoring platform, Wyzant. It’s been so much fun helping others improve, and my dance card’s filling up fast. I also continue to work on several book projects. All I can say is it’s a good thing my two daughters have headed off to college because I no longer have time to raise them.
